    A different perspective. I have been a very positive person all my life but over the last few years my family has been subjected to narcissistic abuse by a neighbour. I find that the positivity message so prevalent in our society has resulted in people treating those who are having a negative experience as someone to avoid because obviously they are just behaving like a victim and need to “get over it”. Not only are we losing our home but I have been dismayed to find that people who have known me as a “positive” person for years have offered up disdainful comments about our situation. There are times when someone is genuinely suffering, not just pouting because they can’t get what they want, and lack of empathy is simply cruel.

    WOW!! That’s such an awesome perspective, and it’s true that suffering IS real and people are often very ill-equipped to handle it. Even those who receive the most academic training for helping people with their suffering often have lousy solutions. I’m sorry your family has been suffering, and it’s definitely true that shoving rainbows in other people’s faces when they are in pain, confusion or experiencing loss and emotional suffering is a really unkind thing to do. Thanks for your perspective and input Lorelee! <3
